I can’t wait to get my hands on this.  Does anyone know of similar existing product or where I can get Microsoft’s Softgrid?

[update] Here is a free for personal use virtualization software – Altiris SVS – from  I used it before on XP and it’s GREAT.  It says it’s compatible with Vista now, so I am about to install it and try it out.  Let me know what you think?
